Building Ramps and Hovercrafts and Improving Math Skills
TEACHING Exceptional Children Volume 34, Number 1, ISSN 0040-0599
This article describes a video- and computer-based program used to motivate and develop mathematics skills in middle school students with disabilities. The program emphasizes real-life problems such as building a cage for a pet, a skate boarding ramp, and a "hovercraft" frame. Case studies illustrate the program's effectiveness with individual students. Assessment guidelines are also provided. (Contains references.) (DB)
